Obtained from an old British collection, acquired from a London collector.
The scarab beetle was a significant god in ancient Egypt, representing the God of the Sun, Khepri, who it was believed rolled the ball of the sun through the heavens during the day, and through the caverns of the underworld during the nighttime. One of the most popular amuletic charms in ancient Egypt, the upper surface is finely carved with the details of the beetle, whilst the underside has been inscribed with Concentric circles and flower petals. The whole can be interpreted as blessings from the Sun god Amun-Ra, represented by the solar disc.
